Our Crazy Mixed up kids

Jess in Welsh traditional dress

Caribbean Community flag

Welsh Rugby shirt

Scottish football shirt

Today Jessica was proudly wearing her Union Jack T shirt!
Interestingly their maternal grandparents are from the Caribbean but have lived in England for the last 40 years. Their Paternal Grandmother is Welsh and their Paternal Grandfather is Scottish. Hence the Welsh dress and the Welsh or Scottish sports shirts. Last year at Bible college they met people who worked or were going to work as missionaries all over the world and when you hear them playing trains or airplanes they fly to places like Albania Angola Brazil or Nepal. They are pretty good at identifying different countries flags but at times Samuel does get confused and after driving a few hours in the car somewhere he will ask us what country we are in. The world is a global village and when they sing the Peruvian National Anthem, alongside their classmates they too know all the words and have their hand on their heart!
